VERGENNES — As expected, Vergennes aldermen on Tuesday warned a May 14 vote for a $1.45 million bond to fund a new 4,611-square-foot police station on North Main Street, one that will cost taxpayers $400,000 less than the proposal that was narrowly defeated on Town Meeting Day.

The plan calls for savings of about $300,000 in construction costs over the initial proposal, mainly due to a building redesign that cuts out a little more than 1,300 square feet, but also due to savings on site development and land costs. The project cost is now roughly $1.55 million.

Posted on April 11, 2013 |
By Joanna Colwell



While many people find themselves in yoga class because their doctor advised it as a natural way to lower blood pressure or relieve an aching back, the real purpose of yoga is to achieve the blissful state of awakening known as Samadhi.

In the branch of yoga that I study, all postures have a Sanskrit name, and seasoned students learn these names and the postures they stand for.
